There’s a moment on every Rubblebucket record where you realize you’ve been invited to the best, weirdest, sweatiest, most joyful party in the world.
On their new album, Earth Worship, that moment comes as soon as the opening line hits: “I’ve been coming a thousand years / you could call me the endless fuck.” With their latest record, there’s a renewed shimmer on top of what Alex & Kal are doing, showcasing Rubblebucket’s intricately sparkling beats, hushed-yet-hooky vocals, and irresistible melodic complexity. Ultimately the album is a celebration of togetherness, environmental curiosity, and the pleasure in doing what you love. And it’s just an impossible amount of fun. Its announcement arrives today with a music video for the aforementioned album-opening title track “Earth Worship,” directed by Haoyan of America. Watch it above.
The record, which also features June’s “Morning In the Sun,” isn’t out until October 21st but is available to pre-order now. You can get it on limited edition Blue Swirl vinyl over at the band’s webstore or our Bandcamp. If pink is more your bag, you can find a copy in your local record store. Options, options, options below.
In other news, while additional touring will be unveiled soon, the band has announced a special NYC release party at Public Records in Brooklyn on November 2nd. A very cool, but very small space, this one will sell out fast. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am ET. Snooze at your own risk.
